What are the common applications for the Lotus DNA Library Prep Kit?

The Lotus DNA Library Prep Kit can be used to construct libraries for the following applications:

  • Whole genome sequencing (WGS)
  • PCR-free sequencing
  • Detection of germline inherited single nucleotide variations (SNVs) and insertions/deletions (indels)
  • Hybridization capture of target sequences (e.g., the exome or transcripts of interest)
  • Low frequency somatic variation detection of SNVs and indels
  • RNA-Seq starting with full-length, double-stranded cDNA input
  • Metagenomic sequencing
